  •  why not? A lot of people write books. (4+ / 0-)

    I've been working on some self-development issues and, if I succeed, have thought about writing an article for the Am. Journal of Psychology, and maybe a book one day as well.

    I probably won't (eihter one) but what's the harm in marketing a book?

    •  No harm at all (6+ / 0-)

      But you yourself state that you are working on these issues. Any conclusions you draw will be the fruit of your time and research.

      This author has a message for all humanity that was supposedly bestowed upon him freely by a being of infinite love. A message that profoundly transformed his life and allowed him to see that everything is part of connected whole. He'll share it with you for $8.84 on Amazon. There's nothing inherently wrong with it. He did put the time into writing it. I just wonder why something so profound wouldn't move him to share freely under creative commons in order to reach as many people as possible. It would allow for translations into many different languages and sharing of the message. This limits his audience due to copyright restrictions.

      Then again, I would also hope that if someday, someone invents a vaccine that prevents cancer, that vaccine would be made widely available. But that's just me. He has a right to charge money for this and I hope those that read it do find comfort in his words.

      I wish you success with your work and hope you do get published.

        there was that Newsweek article, etc. etc.  He's not offering a ticket to heaven--just sharing his experiences--we can make of it, believe, disbelieve, what we will.

        It's not that he's withholding information that will grant us redemption or anything.

        I just don't see anything wrong with writing and publishing a book about it...
